We know that up to 30% of the dry weight of the brain and eye is made up of long chain fatty acids, the majority being Omega-3 DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), and to a lesser degree Omega-6 and that these nutrients can only be supplied from the diet. So it is particularly important that they’re in constant supply during the first two years of a child's life, when brain development is most rapid.
A developing baby will receive essential fatty acids through its mother’s placenta during pregnancy, and hopefully these nutritional inputs will be maintained during breastfeeding, as essential fatty acids are key active components of a mother's breast milk. To help safeguard dietary intake during breastfeeding we recommend mothers supplementing with mumomega. A young infant’s brain continues growing rapidly until they are approximately two years old, therefore Omega-3 DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and Omega-6 AA (arachidonic acid) are still important after breastfeeding has stopped.
The formulation is similar to the capsules of its parent product, mumomega, but the essential fatty acids in Equazen eye q baby are delivered in simple Twist-Off capsules. So all you have to do is twist off the tip and squeeze the contents into any food and drink. The product is suitable for babies of 6months to 3 years old.
The eye q baby formulation is suitable for babies aged six months to two years. Equazen recommends squeezing the contents of one Twist-Off capsule per day into food.
At equazen, we are devoted to help family members improve their quality of life and achieve their desired potential in a safe and natural way.
equazen started with a very clear goal that hasn't changed since its creation in April 1999. Our mission is to encourage individual health by providing premium grade omega-3 and omega-6 formulations based on lipid science, and backed by strong independant research.
equazen eye q contains high quality marine and botanical oils. Here are a few of the key facts that you may want to know so that you – or your children – can take our oils with confidence.
Five facts about the Omega-3 component of equazen eye q:
In equazen eye q, the high EPA marine oil comes from small fish, specifically sardines and pilchards.
The fish which we use in our oils is sourced from sustainable stocks.
The oil we use is independently tested for its Vitamin A and D content.
For our high EPA oils, we harvest the fish during the few weeks of the year when these oils are highest, ensuring that we deliver a high natural source of EPA – this is important for the quality of our fish oil.
We comply with stringent EC and WHO regulations with regard to dioxins, PCBs, heavy metals and other potential pollutants.
The result is high quality fish oil in a natural form.
You may want to know some facts about the Omega-6 component: virgin unrefined Evening Primrose Oil. This is a particularly high quality source of GLA because we:
Extract with a simple mechanical press similar to that used for virgin olive oil, ensuring minimal contact with heat, light or oxygen. We believe this to be superior to the other methods. Solvent extraction leaves chemical traces, and mainstream pressing causes heat damage to this delicate oil.
Filter the oil to take out small particles.
Refine to reduce the impurities which can affect product stability and which could give the oil a bad odour or taste
Finally, when manufacturing these ingredients, we use pharmaceutical-grade facilities for encapsulation and packaging.
equazen is dedicated to developing natural-based nutritional supplements with specific combinations of Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids. equazen products are backed by robust scientific research aimed at furthering the understanding of essential fatty acids and their health benefits.
The balance between omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids is a determining factor in physical and mental well-being. Nowadays our modern western diet is deficient in omega-3 and in excess of omega-6. This imbalance can cause a host of symptoms and disorders, hence it is essential to restore the balance.
The name equazen is made of “equa” and “zen”, it means finding the right balance between science and nature. Our mission is to encourage individual health by providing premium grade omega-3 and omega-6 formulations based on lipid science and backed by strong independent research.
Founded in 1999 by husband and wife team, equazen is now owned by the Swiss pharmaceutical company Vifor Pharma, a company of the Galenica group.
We work closely with an international network of distributors around the globe. equazen’s distributors are just like any large family: they have their own individual strengths and share common traits -they are innovative, committed and on a mission!
